Geilo - Cycling for all

Try out downhill cycling or take a calm family trip. Geilo offers so many bicycle possibilities. In Geilo Summer Park, you take the chairlift and belt lift up and bike on adapted trails of varying difficulty at the ski facility. This includes 4 trails adapted for children and beginners with its own lift.

The Ustedalsfjord Round goes out from the center of Geilo and is suitable for both family outings and training rounds. Stop by Fekjo Cultural Heritage Park or go for a swim at the nice, sandy beach.

Fatbike – A Must Experience: Snow cycling on wide tires has become very popular in Norway. If you haven’t tried this yet, you can get your chance in Geilo. Super-wide tires give a large supporting surface and make it possible to bike on snow. A fatbike behaves quite simularly to a regular terrain bike, but biking on snow is both fun and adventurous. Geilo Aktiv organizes «mini expedition trips»
with guide and all equipment included.

The 82 kilometer long Navvy Road is Norway’s most popular bicycle route, and a journey in both majestic scenery and fascinating cultural history. The Navvy Road was built as a construction road for the Bergen Railway and was finished in 1902.

The Navvy Road is located between Oslo and Bergen. It is possible to bike the entire distance in one day, but calculate two to three days and time for some experiences underway. The most common is to start the journey from Haugastøl, Finse or Myrdal; and the most popular part of the route is between Finse and Flåm.

Where Can You Cycle?

You can cycle roads and trails in uncultivated land, which lead to outlying areas and everywhere in the mountains. However, cycling is not permitted in the Hallingskarvet National Park; and in the Hardangervidda National Park, cycling is only permitted on Tinnhølvegen Road and approved tractor roads.

The Cyclist's Trail Rules

  1. Be thoughtful and nice when meeting hikers.
  2. Pedestrians always have the right of way.
  3. Limit your speed so that you are not a danger or nuisance for others, especially along roads and trails that invite high speed, or in blind stretches.
  4. Brake down to walking speed well before you pass others on a narrow trail.
  5. Do not create new tracks. If you do not have the skills to negotiate an obstacle, get off the bike.
  6. Avoid cycling on especially vulnerable trails, like in periods just after heavy precipitation.
  7. Do not make the trail wider by cycling around puddles or obstacles.
  8. Carry the bike through marshlands, so deep groves are not formed.
  9. Don't lock the back wheel down steep downhills.
  10. When two cyclists meet on a hill, the person going uphill has the right of way.
